Difficulty Level: Easy, suitable for beginners and up.
Versailles State Park will be having a fireworks show on July 6. This will be a great opportunity to view the fireworks from Versailles Lake. We will launch from the boat ramp at 8:00 pm and paddle around the lake until the fireworks start at 10:00 pm. We’ll then watch the fireworks show from the lake. We’ve done this before and it is quite the experience to watch the fireworks in the sky and the reflections in the water. The sound is unique too as the booms echo off the surrounding hillsides.
Suggested items to bring: Wide brimmed hat, sun block, hand sanitizer, sunglasses, large sponge, bilge pump or container to bail out water, water, snacks, weather radio, towel, change of clothes, water shoes, paddling gloves, rain gear, bug spray, safety whistle, drybags, Ziplock bags, camera, binoculars, rope, headlamp or flashlight, a sense of adventure, and a good dose of humor.
For clothing try to use something other than cotton, especially if the weather is cool. Polypropylene or polyester are good choices since neither holds water and they wick moisture away from you.
IYAK policy is that all participants MUST wear a PFD while on the water.
